Located mid-way between Denton and Argyll (south of Denton and often advertised as being located in Argyll). George Franklin opened the Colonial Drive-In on May 20, 1948, one week after Denton’s Rancho Drive-In opened. It was designed in a Colonial Revival style by Texas Manufacturing Company of Fort Worth, TX.
Around 1953 it was renamed Twin Vue Drive-In. Sadly, George Franklin and some of his workers were killed while trying to hold up one of the walls during a tornado on March 24, 1954. It was renamed Colonial Drive-In again and was operated in 1955 by Debbs Reynolds. It was still open in 1957.
